The Spring equinox, also known as March Equinox or Vernal Equinox, marks the beginning of Spring every year. Spring equinoxes usually begin on either the 19th, 20th or 21st of March. But this year, it will be starting on the 19th at 11:49pm, making it the first time in 124 years.
Scientifically, a Spring Equinox is basically when the Sun moves North, or up, the equator instead of across it. And when it moves south, or down, the equator, it’s known as the Autumnal equinox, signifying Fall.
Spring, in general represents releasing and renewal hence Spring cleaning. Taking out the old to prepare for the new. However, Spring is set up a little different this year due this Corona virus scare. So, we’ll have to welcome Spring in a ‘no contact’ kind of way which sucks. But, that’s ok! Being alone or keeping company to minimum during the Spring equinox is not a bad idea. In fact, releasing and renewing in solitude is actually the best way to manifest exactly what you want because you’ll be focused, no distractions or confused energy. You’ll be able to really identify your “leaky faucets” in the silence, then accurately assess the problem and provide a foolproof solution. It’s hard to do those things when you have to entertain (and feed) Joe, Schmo and Moe.
On the day of the Spring Equinox, the amount of daylight is equivalent to the amount of night time. But, if I do spill some tea myself, daylight will actually be slightly longer than night by several minutes this year due to the shape of the Earth. But, you get the idea right? Let me add that this introduces a common spring theme, balance.
So, I created a list of things you can do during this reclusive Spring equinox quarantine to still embrace this Spring without compromising your health!
Create A Vision Board.
This doesn’t have to be “sister circle professional” vision boarding. Just use what you have at home. I am not going to be the reason you’re going to Micheals in these conditions. But, use some old or new magazines and cut out words and pictures that resonate or that you want to resonate with you this Spring 2020. Capture how you want to look, feel and be and over time, watch it develop right before your eyes.
Clean Out Your Closet, Cabinets, Phone etc.
You should have seen this one coming! They don’t call it spring cleaning for nothing. Rather you’re swapping out winter clothes for Spring or just getting rid of things you don’t wear anymore, just get rid of the access. In fact, cleaning out EVERYTHING is strongly encouraged. For instance, I just cleaned out my refrigerator, my kitchen cabinets, re-organized my coat closet and my “hair bag” (yes I have a hair bag) cuz you know sis lives for a good wig!
Sage Your Entire House & Yourself.
Prepare for a Spring filled with amazing energy by cleansing away old vibes and welcoming the new ones. If sage isn’t your thing (which it should be by now because it’s everybodys thing) you can always substitute that out for burning candles instead while saying your affirmations and prayer.
Cross Something Off Your Bucket/To-do List.
I know you’ve got one. Most of us created this list from New Years. I know I did and it was quite lengthy. And during this qurantine, I realized that a lot of it, I could start on right here in the loneliness of my own home. Like for instance I’ve been wanting to catch up on writing, both blogging and novel writing. So what did I do? I wrote the 1st chapter of my book and my 1st blog post in over a year. Thanks Corona!
Create or Revamp Your Schedule.
Take a look at your schedule again to see where you can improve your time, add a new thing or take away one that no longer serves your purpose. Personally for me, I’m not big on sticking to the script per say, but I do like to utilize my time as much and as productively as possible. So for once in my life I’m going to start new habit of having and sticking to a schedule to ensure I’m making the most out of my time and self.
Ha! (I can just feel the blank stares) That’s right, I said it. DETOX. That means no liquor, no drugs, no sex. OK, clearly I went to far with the no sex thing but you get my drift. Whatever your vice is, whatever you overly- indulge in, try to take a break during this quarantine, at least.
